Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (18 May 2016)

Deidre Brock: ...mean compassion, humanity and respect. Unfortunately, these do not seem to be the driving impulses of this Government. There does not, in fact, seem to be much driving this Government. The high-speed rail Bill appears to have returned for an encore in this Session. If the speed of that Bill is an indication of the speed of the trains, I think the Bill is badly named—it is more Thomas...

The noble Baroness has referred to Amendment 121CA, which provides that the consultation should not be confined to the first regulations but should apply to any sets of regulations that might emerge.

Energy Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments (12 Apr 2016)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: ...the Minister for his willingness to engage through exchanges of letters and in meetings. One reason why we on these Benches were very happy to support the move to take out the principal clause in the original Bill was not that we did not expect the Government try to bring back the clause, but that we felt that it would give them an opportunity to reflect on and try to improve the grace...

Housing and Planning Bill: Committee (9th Day) (Continued) (23 Mar 2016)

Lord Greaves: My Lords, at last we arrive at perhaps the remaining flashpoint in the Bill. I rise to move Amendment 102CL and speak to my other amendments in the group. There are two other very useful amendments from noble Lords in the group. Clause 145 is a major, very controversial innovation. It may be the first step towards the privatisation of development management and yet it was dumped on the...

High Streets — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (1 Mar 2016)

Mark Menzies: ...heavily over the past four years to relax Sunday trading legislation, but there is little point in raising the matter again today because the Government have included measures in the Enterprise Bill to devolve the power to relax such restrictions. The fact that local authorities will have the power to zone Sunday trading hours to help high streets and city centres over out-of-town retail...

Public Bill Committee: High Speed Rail (London - West Midlands) Bill: Clause 1 - Power to construct and maintain works for Phase One of High Speed 2 (1 Mar 2016)

Robert Goodwill: I look forward to spending some happy days with you this week, Mr Hanson, discussing this important Bill. Before I begin, I would like to take a short moment to set out what lies before us. The Committee sittings will enable line-by-line scrutiny of the Bill, which will pave the way for a truly transformational railway. I am delighted that we have reached that landmark, and I would like to...

Scotland Bill - Report (2nd Day) (29 Feb 2016)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: ...to 1989, is outdated. In fact, it is sufficiently outdated that, in the mean time, in England and Wales, it has been changed so that applications for development consent are dealt with under the Planning Act 2008, a much more suitable system. In Scotland, it has been described as effectively a legislative orphan. The Scottish Parliament has no power to reform it, and when the United...

Public Bill Committee: Bank of England and Financial Services Bill [Lords]: Clause 27 - Enforceability of credit agreements made through unauthorised persons (23 Feb 2016)

Harriett Baldwin: ...vehicles. Transformer vehicles—you may be wondering, Mr Brady—are used for risk mitigation purposes in insurance markets, particularly in the insurance and reinsurance industry. The Government plan to use this power to implement a new framework for insurance-linked securities business. Insurance-linked securities are now an important and growing part of the global specialist...

European Council: Northern Ireland (Stormont Agreement and Implementation Plan) Bill (22 Feb 2016)

Mark Durkan: ...for all individual politicians put under pressure at community level to get involved in this, that or the other, or to lend their presence to an event. A proper, articulate and robust pledge could give us a lot in that respect. There are other issues about the Bill that I want to mention, before I touch on what is not in it. As hon. Members have said, the First Minister and the Deputy...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 79 - Onshore wind generating stations in England and Wales (2 Feb 2016)

Housing and Planning Bill: Second Reading (26 Jan 2016)

Lord Beecham: ...United three times this season. Their contributions to this debate have been extremely constructive and helpful. Eighty years ago, a book was published entitled The Strange Death of Liberal England. The Bill will help to encompass the strange death of social housing. It is strange because councils and housing associations have played a critical role in the provision of good-quality,...

Energy Bill [Lords] (18 Jan 2016)

Amber Rudd: ...decades to come. It is far better that the jobs and revenue are in the UK, offsetting imports where we can. Maximising economic recovery from the UK continental shelf must be part of a balanced plan for a diverse and progressively lower-carbon mix. This Bill will complete the work started in the previous Parliament to implement fully the Wood review. Key to Sir lan’s recommendations...

UK and Kazakhstan — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (5 Jan 2016)

Bob Stewart: ...oil prices sustained Kazakhstan’s strong growth from 2000 to 2007, when the global financial crisis hit. GDP per capita, a measure of living standards, rose by 89% in real terms over those years. Growth slowed in 2008 and 2009, but picked up again in 2010. The World Bank notes that those rising income levels have led to rapidly falling levels of poverty, which is excellent news. Our...
